Default Body Work Required

Hello.
So my 04 needs some body work. I need to replace my front bumper, passenger fender and the rear bumper will need to be sanded down and repainted due to scratches. The car has imperfections here and there, but they're very minor. There is some slight scratches on the passenger side where the rear bumper meets with the body.

Since i have to repaint so many body parts, my question is; would it be better to repaint the whole car or just repaint the parts that need to be repainted? Has anyone had bumpers repainted and can chime in if the difference is big?

I'm worried that the new paint will stand out more when compared with the rest of the car and id prefer things to look consistent... If going repainting the whole car, how much would it run me? I would repaint the car with the same color it already is (if that would make a price difference...)
Thanks.

Might as well paint the whole car since blending will be involved for the front and rear bumpers.

Kind of hard to give up all that money.

Why don't you wrap your car in gloss? It'll run you about 2000-2500

If you just paint the panels needed, the body shop will have blend the new paint into the the adjacent panels so it won't be so obvious.

Consider a good detail, buff/wax/polish, you might be surprised how nice it comes out when a professional does it.

I cannot afford a paint job at this time, so that will be the one thing I do for sure this year.
Cost: about $200

Exactly my point. If you want a quality job, it will not be cheap unfortunately.
